I added bead board and a chair rail. A pedestal sink gives the illusion of more space. The trim is in Dover White accented with Urban Bronze (dark gray). I also painted the outside of the tub with this color. The top half of the walls are in Escape Gray. The bottom half is in Ethereal Mood. These colors were selected from the Neutral Nuance collection HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams.
Have you ever seen floor tiles on the wall??!! That is what was going on in this kitchen. It was a lot of work to pull off all the tiles and then scraping all the glue off! I had to use a heat gun to get the most stubborn glue off – what a labor of love!
Remove the tiles! Paint it!
But it was worth it!! I did have to bring in a drywall taper to skim coat the walls. There was no other way to get them in condition to paint. The walls are Accessible Beige (Sherwin-Williams) and the cabinets were painted Curio Gray (Sherwin-Williams). These colors were selected from the HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams Coastal Cool color collection.
